Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus is about injury. From crippled heroes to resistance leaders grappling with PTSD, the game’s cast of heroes bears deep wounds that recall the all-too-real injuries of war veterans, victims, and those who would ignore them.
Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus’s first round of downloadable content has unlocked. The Freedom Chronicles: Episode Zero blend pulp sensibilities with strong levels design to create a fun package that shows a lot of promise.

The warm sun beats down on a main street in Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus, just in time for the Victory Day parade. Uniformed SS march down swastika-filled streets to thunderous applause.

Most of them are simply there to build out the game’s Nazi-ruled America, but one in particular makes fun of the magazine Mother Jones for a profile of Richard Spencer it ran exactly…
